TMZ Finally Jumps The Shark…Then Calls It A N*gga

Is today April 1st?

*Checks the calendar*

Surprisingly, it is not but maybe TMZ’s latest stunt would make more since if it were.

Doing their usual troll, Harvey Levin’s house spoke with Suge Knight, a credible member in the Black community if there ever were one, and during the convo Suge revealed that he’s offended when he’s called African-American (because “we not from Africa. We Black”). Some other drivel goes on about giving non-Blacks a pass to say the N-word, followed by one of TMZ’s shitty little polls (because they “gotta ask…”) asking should Black people be referred to as African-Americans or n****s.

It’s almost 2014. Why on Earth should we have to ask a question? Which staff member sat up in that office and pitched this idea? And where’s the token Negro on staff who laughed instead of smacking somebody’s kufi off? There wasn’t one “real n****” in there who would’ve slapped that Coke out of Levin’s hand, flipped a few desks and knocked over monitors?

I’m all for political incorrectness because our society plays it too safe at times. Conversations with friends can be candid, discussions of touchy subjects can be held in a civilized manner if all parties are willing to play it cool. We don’t have to not speak on certain subjects regarding race, ethnicity, culture, etc. for fear of stepping on toes. If the goal is to create understanding, let’s talk about it.

However, I’m not a fan of sheer ignorance.

And TMZ’s decision to pose this question – indirectly because of Suge Knight’s suggestion, as if he’s a credible “n****” to begin with – is some low-class, shade-tree journalism. Moves like this are why for every tiny inch of credibility TMZ gains for breaking news and posing as a credible source, they lose several feet when they fall back on posting asinine topics like this.

Over it. I’m about to go help my little n**** children with their homework. Education’s the only way we, as Americans, will ever surmount ignorance.
